The impact of COVID-19 will undoubtedly unleash a food security crisis that will be deeply felt in poor communities across South Africa for months to come. The millions of people that rely on a daily / weekly income from the construction industry, the informal economy, small businesses etc. will be severely affected. How and what we eat affects our well-being. Therefore, creating better access to food for the poor is critical in the coming months.
In partnership with our various stakeholders, FoodForward SA is committed to scaling up so that households in vulnerable communities receive proper food provisions. Thank you to all our food and financial donors for your generosity and for caring enough to make a difference.
Our Foodbanking model ensures that the provision of one meal costs only R0,85, making our model the most affordable food security solution, while allowing every R1 to go further.
We need your help! Please support our R50mn special appeal so that we have the ability to intensify our efforts and reach as many households as possible.
